“Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.”
I am sure my son's father and I would disagree on this quote. While we both may try to educate our son on experiences based on our own, one would have stated a very slanted biased view.
I think the important part of this quote is no matter what we try to teach our children, actions always speak louder than words.
If you are an alienated parent or an alienating parent, remember that your children will imitate you based more on your unspoken words and actions.
